Bayview community meeting and press conference Thursday on police
December 8, 2005, 10:00 a.m.
A Bayview community meeting and press conference will be held
Thursday morning in response to suspension of 20 San Francisco
police officers Wednesday.
Police Chief Heather Fong and Mayor Gavin Newsom announced the
suspension following revelation of alleged officer participation
in video productions the mayor's office described as ranging "from
immature and vulgar to sexist, racist, and homophobic."
Newsom announced creation of a Blue Ribbon Commission "tasked
with conducting a thorough and comprehensive review of the San
Francisco Police Department's personnel policies, standards of
conduct and training, as well as appropriate representations of
the communities they serve."
Sponsored by the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights and the Idriss
Stelly Foundation, the 10:00 a.m. press conference will be held
at 4921 3rd Street between Palou and Quesada Streets.
